1st Line Defence have now undertaken a number of pre-acquisition desk top studies for us. They have proven to be informative and instructive as to site conditions and the likely risks associated. We have also employed them on site to undertake site investigation of piling locations. They undertook these works efficiently, on programme and competitively. On their site performance to date, 1st Line Defence will continue to be our choice for UXO reports and site works.

Technical Executive, Crest Nicholson London

Just wanted say a huge thank you for sorting out the survey for us and fitting us in so quickly. The operatives on site have been absolutely brilliant over the last week and have kept us informed at every step of the way – even showing us how it all works. An absolute credit to you and your company. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to use you again and indeed the lads would be top of my list. Please pass on our thanks once again to them

Again, thank you for the hard work that you and your team put into completing this work to the tight deadlines we set.

In terms of feedback I’d rate the service as excellent across all categories. I’ve been genuinely impressed with the speed and quality at which both the reports were turned around (not to mention the fact that it’s been interesting to get to know a bit more about the sites’ history) and with the timeliness and ease of agreeing the nature and scope of works to be undertaken.

Geotechnical Engineer, Intégral Géotechnique

Thank you for your assistance in determining the most suitable solution / assessment for the scale of works involved. Having different levels of assessment and a common-sense approach is particularly useful for smaller scale works and I will use / recommend 1st Line Defence for similar works in the future. Thank you for your time in explaining the different options available and helping us determine the most suitable form of assessment for the works.

Engineering Geologist, Atkins Global

They were very helpful from the first contact, offering advice on methodology and approach to working on an awkward site. They were also flexible with our proposed programme of works and provided a quick response to our enquiry, mobilising an engineer to site at relatively short notice. Their UXO engineer was very professional, giving clear and comprehensive induction to the site works team. He was also accommodating, adjusting to a changing work programme at very short notice. His communication was excellent and he carried out work diligently. The office staff have always been very pleasant and happy to help where they can. I would happily recommend them and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them again.
